French Connections

If you are travelling to France from southern England and don’t want to go as far east as Dover then the Ferry crossing from Poole to St Malo could be a more convenient option for you.

This route, run by Condor Ferries, is great for those who wish to limit the driving hours down to the southern regions of France. Arriving in St Malo also means that you will bypass the often arduous task of driving through Paris. The Ferry itself runs once per day and the journey takes around 7 hours.

See bottom of the page for alternatives to the Poole - St Malo ferry route.

Also, see our free guides to find out more about what is available in and around the ports of Poole or St Malo.
